Rosemary Portobello Chicken Thighs…and a winner!

by jerseygirl on January 14, 2009 · 34 comments

First, let me announce the winner of the Go Appetit giveaway. Congratulations to Laurie from That’s Not What the Recipe Says. I hope you enjoy the soups.

Now on to the recipe. I will continue with my healthy cooking and today it is chicken with some rosemary, portobello mushrooms and red wine. Red wine is also perfect to sip while the chicken is simmering.

I love cooking with rosemary because even in NJ, I can pull some right out of my garden any season. It is the one herb that lasts through snow, sleet or extreme heat. See the beautiful rosemary.

I paired this herb up with the chicken and portobello mushrooms but you can use any type of mushrooms you like. I am sure white wine would work in this recipe too. It was just one of those nights where I used what I had in the fridge. Enjoy!

Rosemary Portobello Chicken Thighs

1 TBS olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
salt and pepper
6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/2 cup red wine
1 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped plus extra for garnish
8 ounces portobella mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
1 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth

In a large Dutch Oven, heat olive oil to medium heat. Sprinkle garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper on chicken. Brown chicken for 5 to 10 minutes or until brown. Add wine to deglaze pan. Add rosemary, mushrooms and broth. Bring heat to low and simmer covered for about 40 minutes or until chicken is very tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

This looks too delicious to be healthy! I had no idea that rosemary lasts through the snow. I’ll have to plant some, thank you for the recommendation.

Yum, this would be one for me to cook for a night on my own, Matt strangely doesn't like mushrooms & can't taste rosemary but I love both

Congratulations to Laurie!
I didn’t know about rosemary. I wonder if it would make it in Michigan. I’ll have to try it.

This is a great example of how you can eat healthy and not even feel like you are giving anything up. And I’m glad the rosemary lives through the snow because I am sure you are covered in whiteness this morning!

I really love the scent of fresh rosemary! I didn’t know it would last through the winter. This dish sounds wonderful… and, nothing better than using what you already have on hand.

Yahoo for Laurie! I love rosemary! It is one of my favorite herbs!

I think we still have rosemary and thyme still growing in our garden. Very hearty herbs. Yummy recipe, Lisa! – John

Funny you should say that about rosemary — I’ve never had any luck growing it! Maybe I’ll try again this year. The recipe looks great.

Just curious — how did you do your blog layout? I would love a three-column layout but there are no three-column layouts in blogger. I like your typeface too (not that I’d use it… it’s just nice to have something different.)

I am impressed that your kids eat portobello mushrooms and herbs.
They are good eaters!

I love mushrooms and I love rosemary…I can’t get rosemary to grow in the summer so I’m pretty sure I’d be a failure at growing it in the winter!! Looks delicious, Lisa.

Gorgeous portobellos and chicken. I love the color of both and I bet it was delicious with the rosemary. Looks like a warming and hearty dish.

I also love cooking with rosemary! At the entrance of my buildings there is allways rosemary, and I use it often in a similar dish to this one. It’s really good!

Amen to rosemary and chicken thighs! What a great combo of flavors going on here! My rosemary is doing great even though it is freeeeezing here!

Now that looks tasty! Chicken thighs are my favorite part of the bird, and I’ve only recently discovered how lovely it is paired with red wine. My hubby love mushrooms, so I know he’d enjoy this.

Looks delicious. I found your blog through “The Open Pantry”, the author of which is a good friend. I live in Philly and see you’re a Jersey gal! Gotta love it back east!

Happy Cooking.

there’s something about rosemary and portobellos … they go so nicely together. and i love thighs — they’re so much more flavorful.

I made this last night and I thought it was GREAT!
I was surprised to see that once it was done there was still alot of ‘juice’, but I followed the recipe so I guess it’s what it’s supposed to look like. It was great though.
